So happy to share with you today’s incredible find: all four parts of 1992 Eighth International Women’s Day Video Festival. Four programs, full of cultural nuances of the time… Certain details, such as the intro and outro of each program, the secondary visual characteristics, can provide information on these not so distant times. The topics covered however are still very much relevant (unfortunately).
We want to express our gratitude to humans who maintain the Internet Archive online platform, making so many cultural products available for free.
